Flow Analysis

DRG has more than 20 years of experience in solving water hammer and pulsation problems. To solve these problems and prevent process lines from malfunctioning, DRG has developed BOSfluids and BOSpulse. These professional software solutions can be used to prevent surge damage caused by water hammer, air entrapment, inadequate surge vessel sizing or filling-up a pipeline.

 

Upstream and downstream process lines often involve mixtures of fluids that may consists of multiple phases as well. DRG has a long track record in solving problems associated with the occurrence of multiphase flows, which often consist of water, oil, gas and sand particles using Computational Fluid Dynamics techniques.
